Delicious green chiles stuffed with cheese, dipped in a special batter and fried in canola oil.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 12 Anaheim chile peppers, charred and peeled
- 1 pound Cheddar cheese, cut into strips
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour for coating
Remove seeds and membranes from peppers. Stuff each pepper with a strip of cheese.
In a small bowl combine milk, flour, egg, baking powder, baking soda, salt and canola oil; mix well to make a batter.
Pour enough oil in heavy frying pan to reach 1 inch in depth and heat over medium-high heat. Roll each pepper in flour and dip in the batter. Fry until lightly browned on both sides.
Use canned green chiles, or char fresh green chiles over a flame, then peel them. Remove seeds and membranes.
Anaheim chiles are a good choice for this recipe.
